Ariel Antonio's story

Ariel is 42 years old and lives in the municipality of Tuchin in Colombia. He has 6 children, and a big family that he loves very much. It hasn’t been easy for him, being a humble man with such a big family, but he’s very hard working and responsible, and he always provides for his family. They never lack food or a roof to sleep in.

Ariel doesn’t want to live with just the necessities, he wants to provide a better life to his family, and that was one of his biggest motivations when he decided to become an entrepreneur, making traditional hats, raising chickens, and growing different products.

Ariel lives in a post-conflict zone which means that the armed conflict ended and the community is recovering from that horrible time. He’s asking for a loan to buy more caña flecha (tall grass) to increase hat production, buy more chickens to raise, and to buy fertilizers for his yucca and corn crops.
